T-rex at Springfest

Lennox Herald - - THE TICKET -

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs Na­tional Park is a haven for wildlife, but vis­i­tors to Springfest might get more than they bar­gained for this year.

An 8-foot-tall, 16-foot-long T-rex an­i­ma­tronic will be part of the fes­ti­val’s packed line up of fam­ily-friendly events.

Springfest, the fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing food and drink, takes place on Satur­day April 1 and Sun­day, April 2 at Loch Lomond Shores.

The di­nosaur will be en­ter­tain­ing crowds on the Sun­day only, from 12noon to 2pm.

Springfest was first held on the shores of Loch Lomond in 2015.

The fes­ti­val opens at 10am and closes at 6pm both days.

As well as be­ing thrilled by the fe­ro­cious di­nosaur, there will also be fun for all the fam­ily as kids get to try be­ing mini chefs at the kids tent, there’s a chance to meet the Easter bunny and fol­low the Spring trea­sure trail, whilst adults can en­joy the cook demo tent, spon­sored this year by Green­ergy, through­out the day to pick up tips.

There will also be live mu­sic across the fes­ti­val site from a range of Scot­tish mu­si­cians.

Stuart Wil­liams, mar­ket­ing as­sis­tant for the fes­ti­val, said: “I think a lot of peo­ple are fas­ci­nated by di­nosaurs, so this should be an ex­cit­ing ad­di­tion to this year’s Springfest.

“We’ve had an amaz­ing re­sponse so far on­line, so it looks like fes­ti­val­go­ers are look­ing for­ward to get­ting up close and per­sonal with the T-rex, too.We can’t wait.”
